Future of Music Coalition was proud to produce two panels at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival. The Festival’s mission is to create platforms for filmmakers to reach the best possible audience for their work. The Tribeca Film Festival also celebrates New York City as a major creative source for film.

In 2005, FMC worked in collaboration with TFF to present two panels that address issues at the intersection of music and film: soundtracks and rights clearance. Both panels were held in the main room of the Knitting Factory.

We are both pleased and sad to say that, as of Monday, April 25, tickets for both panels were SOLD OUT

SOUNDTRACKS OF OUR FILMS
O Brother Where Art Thou…Magnolia…Garden State. Whether as an orchestral score or in the form of a simple pop song, a film’s soundtrack can serve as a framing device as integral as the story itself. Directors, musicians, and composers will discuss the effect that music has in movies, as well as the surprising power of film soundtracks to influence musicians’ careers and the music industry itself.

COPYRIGHTING CREATIVITY
“Eyes on the Prize,” the award-winning 1986 documentary series, includes a scene of Martin Luther King Jr.’s staff singing to him on his 39th, and last, birthday in 1968. But because of the copyright on “Happy Birthday” the scene was almost cut…producers were worried they couldn’t afford it. (The film itself is currently unavailable to a new audience because of expired copyright licenses.) Join us for a conversation about how the rights and clearance system impacts the creative process and how we can find ways for musicians and filmmakers to have both the freedom and compensation to create lasting art.
